A couple weeks ago I pulled the bio-pac (the blue ribbon like material) out of the Bac-Pac II skimmer. Could this be causing my cyno outbreak. I'm thinking it has. I feed frozen food and screen it in RO/DI before feeding. I feed nori once a night and have generally not had cyno problems. I don't remember which started first, the cyno or pulling the bio-pac. I can't think of what else it might have been. Everything is live and well so it's not like something is rotting in there.

On the sand surface. On the rock. Mainly the sand.
Params= PH8.4, Nitrate 0-5, Amonia N/D, Nitrite N/D, Calcium 450

Come to think of it I redid my sump whith baffles about 3 weeks ago also. I have a DSB in the sump. I've got a feeling it is cycling.
